• Extra inning: Astros’ Harrell shuts down, then struggles to figure out lost season

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Jul 7, 2013
    Harrell on his reaction to the Astros’ decision: It was just one of those things where you don’t really think it’s the best thing but it’s just one of those deals where it is what it is. Harrell was a candidate for the club’s No. 1 spot during spring training and was the Astros’ best overall pitcher in 2012. Postgame, Harrell spent nearly three minutes answering questions about no longer being a starter and his uncertain future with the Astros. Harrell, 28, might benefit from a change of scenery to a team with a veteran rotation that would guide him and help him mature. But he gave up seven earned runs and walked six Friday during the Astros’ 10-5 loss to the Rangers and has allowed five earned runs or more in six outings. He’s genuinely a good kid, in my opinion, but he would be wise to realize that he is viewed as immature inside his clubhouse and throughout parts of baseball now.
